The influence of annealing temperature on photoconductivity of spray pyrolysed CdS films has been investigated. The annealing of films at 373K resulted in maximum photoconductivity. The photoconductivity at all wavelengths was found to decrease with increase of annealing temperature and became a minimum at 473K. For films annealed at or above 523K, the photoconductivity for wavelengths ⩾560 nm decreased considerably. The results are discussed with the help of ellipsometric data, visible and IR spectra of these samples. Also the variation in photoconductivity of these samples were studied during heating to analyse the effect of trapping.
